CARDIAC PATIENT AND DRIVING ABILITY

DIE BEURTEILUNG DER FAHRTAUGLICHKEIT BEI HERZ- UND KREISLAUFKRANKEN

Cardiovascular disorder is, on the existing evidence, rarely a cause of road accidents resulting in injury to other road users. A licence for motorcars can be issued on certain conditions on medical advice. Patients should be discouraged from using a motorcycle or driving professionally. In cases of recent myocardial infraction, frequent angina pectrois, severe, complicated or malignant hypertension, decompensated heart condition, aneurysm of heart or aorta, rhythm disturbances giving rise to syncope and acute myocarditis or endocarditis, a patient should not be allowed to drive a car.
